An explosive snippet…


Hola awesome ones!

Here’s another 8 from my upcoming short story “It’s Not Our Fault”, which will be released on September 4th in Harmony Ink’s First Time for Everything anthology! I’ve seen the finished ebook files and I’m so excited for you to see it too! My story is between Jo Ramsey and Andrea Speed’s, which is almost enough to get me to insert my favorite word into the word fantastic. But I won’t do that here, at least not today. 🙂

This snippet picks up where the last one left off. (You can find that one here.) Please forgive my creative punctuation, but I thought this was a good place to leave things.


Before I could say or think anything else, she grabbed my shoulders and shoved me back against the stacks. She pressed her thigh between mine; everything about her seemed larger this close.

“You want to know me naked, you mean,” her knee caressed my inner thigh, higher and higher, and stopped just short of hurting my balls.

“Um, if you want… or not, I mean, sure….” I was shaking and sweating by then, so turned on everything else disappeared. She pressed her body against mine, full length and hard; one of her hands slid between us and squeezed me through my jeans and that ’gasm I’d avoided earlier had its way with me. Somehow I didn’t end up on the floor, and that’s a real mystery. When I opened my eyes, barely an exhale separated the tips of our noses. She was even hotter when she glowered.

Thanks for reading!

But before you go, I have a question for you. What do you guys think, would you be interested in a giveaway for the anthology? If so, would you rather have a paperback or an ebook? I’m trying to figure out how many paperbacks to order… one to my local library, one to GRNW, and one to SMYRC along with my charity knitting… one to give away here too?

If waiting and suspense aren’t your thing click here to pre-order your copy on the ‘Zon right now!

  1. Wow, she totally got to him. That’s one unexpected turn after the stalking.

    • It’s no fun if you can guess what’ll happen next! Thanks for visiting, Linda. 🙂

  2. What a turn of events. Didn’t expect her to comfort him in such a way.

    • Nothing about Nay is what you’d expect, or what it seems. Thanks for commenting, Karen! 🙂

  3. Wow, I like that. It is girl pushing the guy around and feeling him up. Hot scene.

  5. Woo baby! That’s pretty hot for these jail bait kids.

    • It’s interesting that it reads hot… the incident (which isn’t over, btw) made me uncomfortable for poor Jordan. And by “uncomfortable” I guess I mean mortified. *lol*

  6. Am I imagining her disappointment, here? I might be projecting, but there’s an air of “this again” in her attitude—I’m getting the sense that she’s not entirely flattered to be just lusted after again.

    Or maybe she is? 🙂

    • Sarah, we’re all lucky you use your powers for good and not evil because you’re eerily perceptive.

      You picked up on the feelings right, but it’s not quite that simple for these kids.

      • Or maybe you’re just a good writer? 🙂

        It never is simple for kids—even fictional ones . . .

  7. Something seems off and I don’t mean that she was the aggressor….so I’m sure there must be more developments to come! Fascinating turn of events here…

  8. Oh, this is perfect! I love his not-quite-sure-how-to-respond stammering, and the line about her being even hotter when she glowered.

    (I have my own suspicions about her, but I’m keeping them to myself until I see if I’m right because, well, they’re a sign of the weirdness of my mind…)
